The Dress: Timeless Elegance

We're not expecting Kate Middleton's wedding dress to be quite as over-the-top as Princess Diana's was, with a 25-foot-train, opulent silk taffeta sleeves and 10,000 hand-sewn sequins and pearls, but we do think she could go with something lacy and timeless. Kate may want to show off her curves, opting for a dress with a slim A-line silhouette or fit-and-flare style from someone like British couture designer Phillipa Lepley. Her designs have been seen on some of England's most elite brides, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Kate picked her. We could also see Kate in something like this classic Marchesa dress, with lots of hand-embroidered details.
